Abhinav is the crust of the litter, you know? Old school JVM hacker. Loves log files. Wishes he was programming Haskell. The usual.
Big data projects were his thing, but we ripped him from his comfortable Cave of Analysis and shoved him into a world of Clojure and Emacs. He's never stopped thanking us.
He would love it if you'd go for a long bicycle ride to Mysore with him tomorrow. Bring some of those little bananas.
Aninda graduated from BIT Mesra, with a degree in Electronics and Communication Engineering which he traded in favor of a life in programming. He started his career in HP where he spent 4 years learning how not to build software on the .NET platform (which he still loves).
He delved into the world of startups where he was able to make a leap of faith into the world of TDD, REST, MVC, DRY, YAGNI, Git, ROR, and other abbreviated coolness. He fell in love with software again, gravitated to a deep appreciation of agile philosophies, and vows not to leave home without it.
Aninda is passionate about building elegant working software, and wanted to work with people who are too, when Nilenso answered his call.
Arnab worked with nilenso for a brief stint to spend time working on Clojure, experiment with product development, and help us flesh out the initial architecture of Kulu.
Arnab has worked for Amazon and LivingSocial and now enjoys time in Seattle working with the AWS Console team.
Asif joined Nilenso after spending two years at MobME Wireless where he dabbled in telephony, picked up Ruby, and helped build the systems that powered a large-scale mobile content subscription service.
Jasim has been programming for over ten years, out of which the last four was spent writing Ruby at startups. He joined nilenso after stints at MobME and as a member of the founding team behind RubyMonk. At MobME he helped build telephony infrastructure for some of India's largest Telco providers. He continued this work consulting on Ruby on Rails projects while at nilenso.
At Nilenso, he partnered with clients to build out their products, helped with product incubation, and generally went all gung-ho about the IndieWeb movement. He likes coconuts.
When the internet goes down, you can find him hunched with a pair of binoculars, either observing birds or stars depending on the time of the day. He enjoys cycling and wishes to busk with a melodica some day.
Steven spent the last decade working for DRW Trading, ThoughtWorks, Adxstudio, The Canadian Department of National Defence, THE MAN, and some other people. Also himself. Not in that order. Whatever, you don't care -- he's obviously just an ineffective old man.
Tejas started his career at ThoughtWorks, where he picked up an unhealthy taste for all things agile.
Tejas is really passionate about open source software - he has worked on multiple projects include KDE and the Sublime Ruby plugin, and has released multiple gems including secure, and musterb. He has given talks at multiple open source conferences, such as RubyConf India.
Timothy has been vaguely passionate about computers ever since he got all the way through Prince of Persia when he was five. This grew into a legitimate love for the field after he crashed his Windows box in 2007, and managed a fragile triple-boot system that included a patched version of OS X.
When he's not glued to a screen of some sort, he's introverted to a fault, likes to jam on the bass guitar, and play snooker.
